Moon does run till daylight does catch up with him | Yuh is ah Trini!

Yuh is ah Trini | "Moon does run till daylight does catch up with him..."

I asked Lady Fabulousss from Maple Leaf land to come up with an explanation for this classic Trini saying; she was on point when she said,"meaning u cud run but u kah hide, u go get it". Did you get it? 

To say in differently then it would be something like this, "if yuh do wrong yuh will eventually pay the price for so doing". Yes, "people who do wrong will eventually meet justice". 

In Trinidad we have had many situations where politicans have been accused of stealing from the public purse. However, to date I can't remember any high profile member of any past government paying the piper for their dastardly deeds. Conniving and cheating is a way of life for many and one would hope  that in their case that "moon does run till daylight catch up with him". Today we have so many reports of wrong doing but we cannon seem to have the Hart (sorry I meant to say guts) to do anything about it. 

Well it looks like the moon is preoccupied with the soucouyant in the hills of Lopinot rather than catching up with the scamps who robbed our country of it's natural resources. 

I hope and prayer for the day that the "moon does run till daylight does catch up with these thieving scamps"!
